Printer Sharing
By using your imageRUNNER 1670F/1630/1610 machine on a network, users can share the
device for printing. Printer sharing with the imageRUNNER 1670F/1630/1610 requires that
both the print server and the client devices are using Windows 95 or later, or Windows NT or
later. The print server and client do not need to use the same operating system, and it is
possible to print from a Windows 95/98/Me client to a Windows NT/2000/XP/Server 2003
print server, or vice versa.
You can start printing simply by starting the server, even if the server was not running when
the client was started.
If the server is running on Windows NT/2000/XP/Server 2003, you can print, even if no one is
logged into the server. Please note that there is no status display on the server when no one is
logged in. The status display is shown on the client.

Halftones is the process of converting a grayscale image to black dots and white (unprinted)
dots that simulate the gray shades in the original image. Different halftone patterns give
different gray shade results.
Brightness is the relative proportion of light and dark areas. Decreasing brightness darkens
the overall image; increasing brightness lightens it. Brightness is expressed as a relative range
from -80% to +80%.
Contrast is the degree of difference between the lightest and darkest areas of an image.
Decreasing contrast lightens the dark areas and darkens the light areas; increasing it darkens
the dark areas and lightens the light areas. Contrast is expressed as a relative range from -80%
to +80%.

Network Printer Status
Viewing the print status
The status of a network printer can be viewed on the print server as well as the client.
For the job status to be displayed in the client’s Status Window, the print server’s Status
Window must be running.
If the status option While Printing has been selected for Display Printer Status Window in
the Option Settings dialog box of the Status Window on the client, the client’s Status Window
opens automatically once printing from the server starts.
If an error occurs on the server, the client’s Status Window for that job opens automatically.

Troubleshooting
CHAPTER
This chapter includes information to help you solve printer problems. A problem might have
one or a combination of causes, such as a computer malfunction, software errors, printer cable
or other printer problems. Many printing problems are related to how your software interacts
with the printer.
If you can print a self test but the printer does not print other jobs, or your printed output is not
what you expected, the problem is with your computer, software, or cables.
